PDF Assemble

1.1.2
20 July 2016

Merge, split, and edit PDF's with drag-and-drop ease.

Overview

PDF Assemble lets you merge, split, and re-arrange PDF-format documents using a drag-and-drop interface.

  • Transfer pages from one document to another
  • Re-arrange the pages in the document
  • Save all the pages as separate documents
  • Save the selected pages as separate documents
  • Save the odd numbered pages as separate documents
  • Save the even numbered pages as separate documents
  • Insert images into the document as pages in user defined sizes
  • Save the document in a password protected encrypted format

Whilst the core functionality of this program is available in the Preview application that comes with every Mac, PDF Assemble adds a little more and allows for a more efficient workflow because, unlike Preview, all operations are carried out within a single window.

What you said is technically true. However, if you have ever used Preview.app for long enough, you will discover more bugs than you can count the legs on a menagerie of millipedes. Have you ever experienced the problem of dropping a PDF into another PDF already opened in Preview.app only to have to Undo the operation or delete the inserted pages because Preview.app has somehow managed to remember in RAM the last PDF pages you inserted? It usually works the second time, but even if at other times it seems to import correctly, you really don't know. If you delete an old page and assume the new page has inserted correctly, you will discover it hasn't at a later date because an old or similarly designed (but with important changes to some of the information) page from memory is re-inserted. A really bad behavior if for any reason you assume the new page has been added and you delete the latest PDF. For important work where having the latest documents with similar page designs or having the latest pages are a must, don't use Preview.app. It should be renamed Crap.app.

And perhaps I shouldn't mention the numerous odd interface oddities that suddenly pop up or struggle to draw the Preview window of the file you want to open and view as if suggesting Preview.app is running out of memory (hard to imagine it so considering it is the only app to be opened on a 16GB RAM and more than 10GB hard disk space).

And what about the way Preview.app unexpectedly quits at certain times for no good reason (you need to restart the app a few times to shake off the memory leaks and problems this app is displaying)? You are not alone!

For all the effort Apple has put into OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 to make it finally stable (again), it has done nothing to make stable and fix the bugs in Preview.app since OS X Mountain Lion came out several years ago.

This is why an alternative PDF manipulation app that is simpler than Adobe Acrobat and is stable and reliable, such as PDF Assemble, comes in handy.
